Ft. Worth firefighters have minor injuries after roof collapse

Posted: Updated:

Two Fort Worth firefighters were injured Friday morning when a roof collapsed on them.

Firefighters were working a house fire in the 7500 block of Woodfield Road when the roof over the garage partially collapsed over them.

Both firefighters were conscious and alert as they were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The family inside the home was unaware of the fire and was alerted to it by a neighbor.

“I was shocked. I couldn't think. All I could really think of was getting me, my sister and my brother out of the house,” said Jasmine Ortiz.

The family managed to get out of the home before the flames destroyed it and the vehicles in the driveway. The three children had to climb out a window.
